Praying for the Diocese 2014:The parish of Castlemore and Kilcoman, (Ballaghaderreen), is the Cathedral parish of the diocese of Achonry. There are four church areas in the parish, Ballaghaderreen, Brusna, Derrinacartha and Monasteraden. The Cathedral was consecrated and dedicated to St. Nathy and the Annunciation on the 3rd. Nov. 1861. The Church of St. John the Baptist and St. Colman in Derrinacartha was built in 1873, St. Aiden’s, Monasteraden was built in 1881 & the Sacred Heart in Brusna was opened 1950. Religious practice has been to the forefront in this community for centuries. In spite of constant harassment, priests continued to minister to the people celebrating Mass in the open air at Mass Rocks, such as the elaborate ‘Four Altars’ in Creggane, Edmonstown. There is also an altar beside St. Attracta’s well in Clogher, Monasteraden. Three counties meet in the parish, Sligo, Mayo & Roscommon.
